2. Our Lab Goals:*GM vs. nonGM NOTstated for students*Identify visible and lessobvious similarities and Explain how DNA gives Visualize and label partsdifference betweenrise to physical traits.of a plant cell. groups of organisms. Begin to think about how technology and Comprehend geneticscience impact societyengineering techniques.

Possible Class ConclusionsGenes are causing different physical traits Different band patterns = different DNA Larger uncut DNA samples = genes inserted Smaller uncut DNA samples = genes deleted 10.
